Synopsis 24 910 am.

Mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures are expected today
before another low pressure system brings cooler temperatures and
increasing clouds on Saturday. There will be a chance of rain
Saturday night into Sunday, with a warming and drying trend early
next week.

Short term (tdy-sun) 24 934 am.

Skies have cleared out in most areas today as light offshore flow
has replaced the strong onshore flow from the last couple days.

Today might be the last day some areas see the Sun until next week
as another trough comes in and strong onshore flow returns. For
today look for 4-8 degrees of warming on average with the weaker
onshore flow and brief ridging aloft. The sba profiler is showing
as much as 10 degrees of warming in the low levels while the simi
valley profiler is more on the order of 3-6 degrees of warming.

There's still some residual moisture over the interior and will
likely see some afternoon buildups, especially sb and ventura
mountains. Otherwise lots of sunshine and generally light winds.

12z models still on track for a gloomy drizzly day Saturday at
lower elevations and showers for Sunday with the next trough. Also
a chance of some afternoon convection both days over the
mountains, especially ventura county.

***from previous discussion***
for tonight and Saturday, another upper-level trough will dive
down across the area. For tonight, as the trough approaches,
onshore flow will be on the increase and an eddy is forecast to
develop. With the lowering of h5 heights, the onshore flow and
eddy circulation will result in a rapidly deepening marine
inversion. So, will expect clouds to push well inland tonight,
reaching the santa clarita valley. Additionally, there may be some
patchy drizzle across the coastal and valley areas. By Saturday
afternoon, limited clearing is likely west of the mountains due to
strong onshore gradients and will indicate partly cloudy
conditions during the afternoon hours. Also during the afternoon
hours, models indicate increasing instability over the local
mountains (lifted indices between -3 and -5). So, there is the
potential for some afternoon showers and even a thunderstorm,
especially over the santa barbara and ventura county mountains and
will keep pops in the forecast.

For Saturday night and Sunday, an upper low drops along the ca
coast Saturday night and moves eastward across tulare kern
counties on Sunday. All models indicate enough moisture and
instability to generate showers across all areas during the day on
Sunday. The best instability is forecast to remain just north of
the area. However, 500 mb temperatures of -23 to -26 degrees
celsius are forecast across northern and interior sections of the
district. So, do believe there will be enough instability to
warrant the inclusion of a slight chance of thunderstorms for
parts of the district, mainly san luis obispo and santa barbara
counties as well as interior sections of ventura and los angeles
counties. At this time, do not anticipate very significant
rainfall with this system with amounts less than 0.25 inches
anticipated (although thunderstorms could generate locally higher
amounts). Snow levels will remain rather high, between 6500 and
7000 feet.

Long term (mon-thu) 24 256 am.

For the extended, relatively benign weather is anticipated. For
Monday and Tuesday, models indicate rising h5 heights and clearing
skies. So, temperatures should exhibit a nice warming trend Monday
and Tuesday with many areas in the 70s on Tuesday. There may be
some limited marine layer stratus during the night and morning
hours.

On Wednesday, models develop another upper-level low over central
ca and move the low over the district on Thursday. So, Wednesday
will be very similar to Tuesday although there may be some
afternoon buildups over the mountains. On Thursday, with the upper
low moving overhead, will expect an increase in clouds over the
area. Moisture is not too impressive with this low, but models
spit out some rain over the mountains. So, will include a slight
chance of showers over the higher terrain Thursday afternoon.

Temperatures will likely be a bit cooler on Thursday.

Aviation 24 1207z.

At 12z, there was no marine inversion at klax.

There were areas of low clouds across slo northern sba counties
and the mtns of l.A. Vtu counties. Conds were mostly MVFR, except
ifr-vlifr in the mtns. Clouds should scatter out in most areas by
mid to late morning. Expect widespread low clouds in all coastal
and valley areas tonight, with generally MVFR conds expected.

Klax... Moderate to high confidence in 12z taf. There is a 20%
chance of MVFR CIGS 13z-18z this morning. There is a 20-30%
chance that MVFR conds will hold off until after 07z this evening.

Kbur... Moderate to high confidence in 12z taf. There is a 20%
chance of MVFR CIGS 13z-18z this morning. There is a 20-30%
chance that MVFR conds will hold off until after 11z tonight.

Marine 24 930 am.

For the outer waters, fairly low confidence in forecast. Winds
may get close to small craft advisory (sca) levels this afternoon
and evening. There is a 40% chance that a SCA will be needed,
especially across the northern zone (pzz670). This will also be
true for Sat afternoon. SCA conds are expected for the northern
outer waters zone Sat night thru Sun night, while there is a 40%
chance of SCA level winds across the remainder of the outer
waters. SCA winds are expected across all outer waters Mon thru
tue.

For the inner waters north of pt sal, moderate confidence in
forecast. Conds are expected to remain below SCA levels thru mon
morning. However, there is a 30% chance of SCA level winds during
the afternoon evening hours today thru sun. SCA conds are
expected Mon thru tue.

For the inner waters south of pt conception, high confidence in
forecast. Through Sun morning, winds and seas will remain below
sca levels. From Sun afternoon thru tue, there is a 30-40% chance
of SCA level winds across the western half of the santa barbara
channel and the western portion of the southern inner waters.

Lox watches warnings advisories
Ca... None.

Pz... None.

Hazard potential outlook (sun-thu)
Another storm system could bring rain, mountain snow and gusty
winds to the region Sun through memorial day. Gusty northerly
winds could linger into Tuesday through the interstate 5 corridor
and across southern santa barbara county.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
